Blown Away – Netflix

There’s a link below to a great review of the new Netflix series “Blownaway”…. which features 10 artist glassmakers, including the wonderful Janusz Pozniac.

You may well remember Janusz when he visited our studio back in 1993 as part of the Arts Council funded project ‘Steal with Your Eyes’.

Janusz demoed his incredible skill, understanding of the material and his artistry.

So, if you like the great British Bake off Forumla of reality TV you will absolutely love this new series on Netflix. Enjoy.

Studio Exhibition – Crossing Lines Crossing Colours

May 2, 2019

An exhibition of new overlay engraved bowl, plate and sphere forms.

Taking elements of the landscape and abstracting the marks, overlaying colour and line.

The stone walls that divide this landscape follow the geology, criss cross the land making an order, a structure, framework to which people work and manage the landscape. This division has an energy and creates a familiar pattern and an illusion of control over the landscape and the elements that shape it.

All these pattens in the landscape are but temporary marks which them selves will be in time overlayed.

The exhibition runs from 3rd June until 30th June

If you’d like more info or an invite to the PV, please join our studio mailing list.
